Now that we have warmer weather, our time outside will be increasing dramatically. In our family, that means a lot of cookouts and lawn games!
While Theo loves food almost more than anything, he seems to enjoy having everyone over and spending time outside.
Give Theo a bucket of tennis balls, and he’s a happy dog! However, his favorite game is tug of war, so I think a tether tug for dogs would be a big hit with him.
Nelly and Sophie aren’t much for fetch, but they like to play with a squeaky toy on the deck.
The humans in my family love playing badminton, bocce, and frisbee games. Playing badminton with Theo around is a bit tricky, he will sometimes try to catch the birdie. And if we leave a birdie lying around, Sophie thinks it her chew toy. Bocce is a great choice to play in our yard; the balls are heavy enough that Theo doesn’t try and carry them away. I think that croquet would be lots of fun, but first I need to learn the rules!
Lots of dogs play Frisbee, and Theo is moderately interested, but not like some dogs I know.
Gertrude, one of our family’s favorite dogs, is a fan of tetherball. It is really fun to watch her play.
While we would never leave our dogs outside all day, I think that they would enjoy watching the games from a comfy spot.
We’d love to know what your favorite lawn games are!
